ABC HEADLINE: "Scientists buck political pressure over climate" posted ABC News Online 10/3/2010
ABC REPORTED: An uncredited article that reports that "CSIRO scientists say they are coming under political attack as part of an orchestrated campaign by climate change sceptics." The article includes comments from CSIRO Staff Association president Michael Borgas who is quoted as saying: "Now we're seeing some quite unprecedented attacks on the integrity of science in the CSIRO, that was in senate estimates recently."
THE COMPLAINT: This article lacks balance (ABC ED POL 5.2.2e) While there were several allegations made in the article that CSIRO scientists are "under attack" no examples of these alleged "attacks" are presented. As the alleged "attacks" supposedly arose from Opposition Senators in a senate estimates hearing ABC could have easily provided specific examples of the "attacks" alleged by Michael Borgas by checking the transcript. Readers of the piece could then judge for themselves whether the questions constituted a political attack on CSIRO scientists or were part of legitimate inquiries into CSIRO.
Please update the article to include the questions from Opposition Senators and replies made by CSIRO.
COMMENT: Without the evidence it's hard for readers to judge the veracity of claims made.
